Ratings for Dr. Y. Behelak
I saw dr behelak during my first pregnancy. The staff was really nice and made me feel welcomed. Even with an appointment though i was always waiting at least 45 minutes extra. He wasnt helpful and denied answering my questions about birthing and labor until a much later date. He then claimed that a baby born in a birthing tub will drown, and that if he didnt cut the umbilical right away at birth the blood will pump back into my placenta. Both things proven false. Im sure he got his diploma from a cracker jack box. He was exceptionally rude.
Shame on you Dr. Behelak for allowing this patient to suffer from heavy bleeding fibroids, at times hemorrhaging, for 9 years without suggesting even one alternative or treatment. The only suggestion given was to wait for menopause when the fibroids could possibly shrink. Shame on me for not finding another doctor sooner!
Dr. Behelak and his staff are so rude. They are not welcoming at all. He sent me to have some tests done and told me not to call him that he would be the one to call me. I have been waiting 5 weeks for the test results. I end up calling , which the secretary was so rude. It seems in order to get my results I have to be the one to call for them. This is the first gynecologist that done this, my former gynecologist would call me right away when they get the results. I won't recommend this Doctor.
I was referred to Dr. Behalek at a walk-in clinic in Montreal when I was pregnant with my first child and I feel so lucky for that referral - his "treatment" fit my personality perfectly. He is really no-nonsense. Example: one of the first statements he made is that I was pregnant, not sick, not diseased, so I would not be treated as though I had a "condition". HOWEVER, when I got to the delivery room, the brusque manner went out the window. He was a complete gentleman. First of all, he is one of the few who still delivers babies of the mothers he's seen, rather than having the doctor on call deliver. I felt like this was what he lived for. (He delayed a long weekend to the country to come in and deliver my second child). He was kind and considerate when I was in the labour room. He was also very good with the nurses and residents. This created a positive and pleasant atmosphere. It was obvious that the team loved working with him and I felt like I was in good hands.
Dr. Behelak was the first gynecologist I had seen in my life. He didn't make me uncomfortable. He is blunt and will sometimes say things that 'prude-ish' women might get all offended over. The reality is, he sees female genitalia in different conditions, day in day out. When he makes comments about sex, condoms and all that, it's for you. Even when it sounds explicit. If that throws you off a chair, seek someone else. He took time to explain things to me. He even insisted that I take care of my hormones and to be careful about doctors and prescriptions. He has been insistent in the past about birth control, but in the end its up to you. He's a nice experienced doctor. It really bothers me that some of the reviews on here describe him in a way that almost makes it seem like he did something to them. If you think his test hurts, try elsewhere.I've been to a women's health center and it was worse.
I have been seeing this doctor for nearly thirty years..sadly he moved to the US but he moved back a few yers ago..He is a gentleman and an excellent doctor..I have recommended him to many friends and they all love him.He is knowledgeable...and so kind.
Dr Behelak m'a suivie durant toute ma grossesse et somme toute, il a été excellent. Il est un peu bourru et autoritaire à l'occasion, mais c'est un très bon médecin. Il a été vraiment super durant l'accouchement; très calme et compréhensif, et il m'a aidée à garder mon calme. Il est par ailleurs resté avec moi jusqu'à minuit, même s'il était de garde depuis le matin. Oh, et il a un sens de l'humour un peu particulier, auquel on apprend à s'habituer, hahaha. Bref, j'ai beaucoup d'estime pour le Dr Behelak et je suis contente que ce soit lui qui ait mis ma fille au monde. <3
